The Power of a Daydream

the machines are fully going
birds are flying and singing
can feel my heart beating
monring light is forgiving
lets me be me in daydream
doesn't mind my bed-head
try & find the day's ryhthm
timing isn't everything but
still it sure helps out a lot...
gotta do what you do to get
want to get there & be in-tune
preparations, superstitions -
the things you do as ritual
such as dream a daydream

would Einstein be Einstein
w/out dreaming a day dream

would Mick Jagger be Mick
w/out dreaming a day dream

would Warren Buffet be King
w/out living in a day dream

it's all or nothing and not
non-productive so daydream

it's all or nothing and not
non-productive so daydream

it's all or nothing and not
non-productive so daydream
